Dear Mayor, City Manager and Parks Director,
With the sky-high interest in drive-in movie theatres these days, I propose the city establish a temporary drive-in theatre in the Plant City Stadium complex area. The face of the parking area on the west side of the stadium is ideal for movie watching.
The city can acquire a 30×30 screen from tarpsupply.com for under $1,000 to be erected on the east side of building on that site.
A wide range of projectors is available and city could expect to spend roughly $500 for one.
An FM transmitter is all you need these days to sync and air the audio for movie patrons. The city can expect to invest about $400 in one.
In summation, with an investment of less than $2,000 the Parks and Recreation Department can create a community drive-in movie experience for local families. Refreshments can be contracted to a local vendor if preferred so the city can avoid any involvement with that.
Just an idea I hope you will consider.
